Review for Last Chance for Animals, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

This charity has an impressive record of achievement of specific humanitarian goals. "More bang for the buck!" We found it worth a trial donation in spite of a one-star rating. They report vigorous investigative pursuit of non-human animal abusers.

Hello Dick, As you will see currently on Charity Navigator, LCA has a 3 star rating. I posted an explanation under the review that Nancy93 gave to LCA. I am hoping you can read that and that you will change or edit your review about Last Chance for Animals. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. For the animals, Cindy Beal-DeRose CFO Last Chance for Animals

 

Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Although this non-prof appears to spend over $22 million per year on fund-raising expenses it shows no concern about staying in touch with faithful regular contributors. I am still waiting for a reply to my inquiry as to why they stopped charging my credit card without notice to me during 2011. They are wasting contributions on inefficient fund-raising.
